SALT LAKE CITY, Nov. 15, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Instructure (NYSE:INST), a leading software-as-a-service (SaaS) technology company that makes software that makes people smarter, today announced plans to open a Utah County office in January 2017. With offices around the world and more than 900 employees, Instructure has rapidly grown its talent base over the last few years. The new office location will help the company continue rapid expansion of its talent pool beyond the Salt Lake Valley.
"The Instructure team is continually growing and shows no signs of slowing down," said Jeff Weber, senior vice president of people and places at Instructure. "With dozens of talented tech hires joining the team, it was clear we had to expand in Utah, and beyond just our Salt Lake City office. We're excited to branch out into Utah County and look forward to offering a space that not only accommodates our growing team but creates an environment conducive to happy and productive employees."
Located in Pleasant Grove, Utah, the new office will eventually accommodate up to 300 of Instructure's Engineering, Product and Customer Success teams. The Utah County location will embody the same award-winning culture and experience as other Instructure offices around the world, including an open and collaborative floorplan, all-wireless internet access, ergonomic workstations, a fully-stocked kitchen, game room, weekly catered lunches, and more. Recognized for its strong work culture, Instructure was ranked #2 in the 2016 Glassdoor list of the "25 Highest Rated Public Cloud Computing Companies to Work For."
In addition to the Utah County office, Instructure plans to expand its 139,000-square-foot headquarters in Salt Lake City to encompass an additional 27,000 square feet. The renovation is expected to be complete in early 2017. The company also plans to continue growth of its other office locations, including Chicago, Seattle, London, Sydney, Sao Paulo and Hong Kong.
